SOURCE: on a pontiac aztec driver door handle ( exterior )

This nylon item is a latch link, although every make calls it something else. This is a dealer-only item, but they are very inexpensive, about 1-4 bucks each.. Buy enough for every door: they are all the same age.

SOURCE: my drivers door inside handle

It is likely that the linkage to the handle has come loose. You will need to remove the door panel to fix this problem.

My inside door handle will not engage the latch to open from inside the vehicle Have to open the door from the handle on outside.


There is a metal rod that connects the inside handle to the door latch mechanism. It is locked in place by plastic fasteners. One has fallen off the end of the rod. Opening the door panel requires special tools to prevent permanent damage to the panel.

My 2009 altima s driver's side door wont open from inside or outside thought door was frozen shut so pulled handle hard to try and open now cant open door


You will need to take inside door panel loose which is a little hard with door shut but it can be done and probably replace door Handel if the Handel it's self is not broke it's most likely just a little plastic clip that holds the rod to the lock

Door handle on my 2000 Buick Park Ave wont open the door, the door will open from the inside, is a part on the handle broken


Either the linkage fell (broke) off, or the handle itself broke. Most handles are only plastic afterall. You can buy new outside handles for fairly cheap ($20 or so). Installing them can be easy or tough depending on the vehicle - soem give you room, some do not. But the job is very straight forward - start by taking off to inside panel. Locate the (should be two) bolts/nuts that hold the handle in place. Take off the lock (held in by retainer clip) and the linkage (metal rod with plastic retainer clip). like I said, pretty straight forward. (make sure the window is all the way up before you start).

How do I fix the door/lock of my 1991 Acura Integra? I can only open the driver side door from the outside


There are only 2 places that you have the problem on the inside door handle. one is at the handle,and the little plastic holder that holds the rod to the handle broke, or the plastic clip the the door lock mechanism broke. the first can be removed without taking the door apart. the inside door handle has a screw holding it in place. you can remove the handle and see if its broken. the second requires you to remove the door panel, to replace the clip that hold the rod to the lock. I door handle in the car is a dealer item only(sorry to tell you that), the clip for the lock, you can get at the auto parts store. hope this helps

Drivers door won't open from inside vehicle, opens from outside with no problem.


you may have a broken inside handle, open the door, remove screws holding door panel on,then pry door panel off, it has plastic retainers that hold panel on they pry off and pop back when installing panel, once the panel is off you will see if the rod just came off or if handle broke if its the handle replace it remove screww holding it and install new one, some are held with revits, drill revit to remove,use screws to reinstall. hope this helps.

1992 Ford Explorer Sport. Outside door handle not


Door handle seems loose and not connected? Then the plastic clip broke inside the door. Take off the door panel, 3 screws, and door lock cap and plastic insert around inside door handle. pry around the bottom first, and go up, when you reach the top, pull up, please be carefull to not break any more plastic. you will see a squarish opening midway up the door toward the latch. reach in and pull a rod toward the opening. You see a broken piece of plastic on the tip? if so take it off and get the replacement part for it at an autoparts store, install the new one and your set. I have broke to many of these so i ended up bending the end of the rod and using a nut to hold it in.:]

Lock mechanism in my doors is broke


the rod inside the door has come off this happens often, most of the time its because the srcew holding the inside door handle is loose try tightening it first, if this does't work remove the inside door handle held on with a t15 or t 20 scew and see if the rod has come off at the handle try pulling on the rods to unlock the door then open it, once the door is open remove door panel 2 screws at bottom and just pry up on the soft upper grommets if it a half door reomve door panel and plastic moisture barrier rods connect from the outside lock cylinder to the lock mech and rods also go from the inside lock to the mech one or both of these has come off reconnect them sometime the clips to hold them in place fall down into the bottom of the door if they are not on the rods look there..hope this helps
